else under the law. >> and the president takes the first step towards challenging congress on climate change. >> we, the people, still believe that our obligations as americans are not just to ourselves, but to all posterity. we will respond to the threat of climate change knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. >> before leaving the capitol, president obama pauses to absorb the moment. >> take a look one more time. i'm not going to see this again. >> what about women's rights? on today's 40th abc anniversary of roe v. wade our exclusive nbc news-wall street journal polls shows for the first time a majority of americans say abortion should be legal in almost all cases. candid camera. the girls snap pictures. they dance. they laugh it up during the parade. >>> nbc's al roker scores a thumbs up from president obama. and gets a running handshake from vice president biden. >> mr. pres
truck to criminals. there's no law that says you can't do that, and so now we're giving law enforcement the tools they need to go after these criminals and these criminal networks to make sure they can't be selling the guns right out of the back of a truck. >> what about background checks? what about registration? >> huge. the backgrounds bill is vitally important. senator schumer has been working on this issue for a very long time. what his bill, did ch i co-sponsored, others will as well, is going to basically say you can't buy guns without getting a background check. today about 40% of guns are purchased without a background check, so that means if you have been kwigtsd of domestic violence or are greyly mentally ill or have a record of violence, you could buy a gun off the internet or at a gun show. it's a vast loophole that needs to be closed, and i know that that's something we're going to work on very hard and try to get passed as well. i think the two bills, the -- having the anti-trafficking and closing the background check loopholes going to make a huge difference because once
. >> and similarly, you've got this very tough new new york state anti-gun or gun control law that andrew cuomo pushed through and signed. is that going to be more of a solution to your problems in new york city and in urban areas, or does that still not go far enough because of the secondary markets and the fact that the guns are coming right across the border from neighboring states? >> i think it's going to be a help, but, again, as i say, 90% of our guns come from out of state. that's why we need a national approach. we need a federal plan. otherwise, we're still going to be playing with guns coming from all over. they come over the iron pipeline. 95, highway 95, coming up from southern states. these are guns that are landing on our doorstep, and they're killing new yorkers. now, last year as you showed me your graphic, we had the lowest mof mrdz we had in new york in at least 50 years, and we're proud of that, but there's still far too many of them. >> and, of course, your fellow cities, i mean, chicago has been plagued with homicides. homicides involving children, young people. this is an
is going on offense against the president's call for gun laws, while refusing to back down from a controversial web ad that focused on the obama daughters and their school. many people feel that ad crossed a line, an important line. one of those is susan eisenhower, who was protected by the secret service when her grandfather was in the white house. great to see you, susan. you and your brother, david, were in the white house as grandchildren, in fact, not very widely known fact, camp david was named after david. >> that's correct. >> by your grandfather. so, tell me about your objection to the web video and why you think that the nra went too far by suggesting that the obama daughters somehow, you know, have security and have benefits that are not available to others. >> well, andrea, let me say very quickly, i've had a 30-year career in international security and arms control and energy security, but this gun control thing is a really tough issue, and it's tough because it's emotional. what the nra has done is to make it even more emotional by bringing in ancillary arguments a
the borders and we actually find ways to enforce the current laws that are on the books with an understaffed and underfunded ice, immigrations and customs enforcement agency, i think it's hard to get to the final step, and that is pathways to citizenship, and i think all these things are part of a solution. look, i favor vastly more legal immigration. what we don't want is more illegal immigration, and neither do people that are here lawfully who have come from other countries. my grandfather came lawfully 100 years ago. we need more of that. we have an arbitrary number of guest worker permits. we need to increase those to meet the economic needs of the country. i think you have to talk about all of these together. for the republican party we've got to make sure we know that people are welcome in this country. >> governor mcdonnell, thank you. we have to leave it will. >> thanks, an trae. >>> as promised, the first of our look backs at inaugurations past. i've been covering them for more than 40 years, starting with one of the warmest. 198 1shg the inauguration of president ronald reagan whe
